Dedicated Applications Lab

With the powerful RiboPrinter® System:

  • Patterns can be used to identify genus and species.
  • Loading and operating the characterization unit are easy and intuitive.
  • Automated RiboPrinter® System simplifies operator training and minimizes errors due to technique.
  • Workstation software is user-friendly, providing sophisticated data analysis that eliminates the need for subjective interpretation of results.

Gain control of your environment.

RiboPrint™ patterns characterize environmental isolates, pathogens, spoilage organisms, control strains, beneficial organisms or any bacteria that are important to quality control professionals in pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, and industrial microbiology. Beyond reliable taxonomic identification, the RiboPrinter® System distinguishes individual strains, providing the granularity of information needed to track, trend, and control your environment.

Read case studies...

Identify, characterize, and trace.

To control unwanted bacteria, you need to know what the organism is and how it entered your process or population. Now you can get the answers to these important questions automatically and simulatenously.

More than 16S sequencing.

Rather than just analyzing the region that encodes the 16s rRNA sequence, the RiboPrinter® System investigates the regions encoding the 5S, 16S, and 23S sequences, as well as the spacer regions and flanking genes on either side. This rich depth of information is what allows for highly precise differentiation among strains of the same species, even those with the same 16S sequence.

Fragments from each sample form a banding pattern according to size.
